Research interests:

During my master’s degree, I was interested in mainly air pollution and remote sensing. I have completed my master’s degree with a thesis I made to determine the contribution of coal-fired power plants to air pollution. Within the scope of this study, I examined the effect of varying meteorological conditions on air quality with different scenarios using a dispersion model. During my PhD, I am more interested in atmospheric chemistry and climate change.
